russia warns not rebel groups in syria. government for chemical attacks. said it would retaliate against. such. c.n.n. releases a highly dubious documentary on alleged russian meddling in u.s. news network is hit by a wave of controversy over sensationalized reporting. on the u.k. prince william former prime minister david cameron find themselves in an brawl in a corruption scandal over england's feel bad for the twenty eight world cup after the release of a long awaited report. to
the world is r t international union o'neil with. your company our top story this hour russia's says' washington's claims that the syrian government could be preparing a chemical attack is an invitation for terror groups to provocations so about the u.s. retaliates against assad with the details here. the fact that the u.s. appears to have not only preempted a chemical attack but is already prepared how it's going to respond such an incident occur is being seen as a worrying development to the russian side and a lot of this has to do with concern over the u.s. being perfectible to repeating past mistakes russia's foreign ministry in its
latest statement has issued a reminder to this respect we know that the bush administration falsified the facts about weapons of mass destruction in order to justify military aggression against iraq these deeply concerns and this comes just two days after a phone conversation between russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov and his u.s. counterpart rex tillerson during which allows for obvious that to have urged the u.s. to exercise restraint in its actions saying that washington must prevent provocations against syrian government troops but it appears that that warning didn't have much of an impact the u.s. claims to have information that shows the syrian president is preparing to launch a chemical attack and with this latest development media in the u.s. has also been pushing for more also from the state department to provide an explanation but it appears to be staying tight lipped you just heard evidence shared with us about this potential preparation for the use of chemical weapons
because that was an absolutely right and nor would that be laid out because that would be considered an intelligence matter when you believe that it's in your interests you do what you say evidence. of intelligence i'm not going to get into that with you but this is a very serious and grave matter it's understandable that concerns are high because this comes as there has still been no evidence provided over the previous alleged chemical attack in syria which the u.s. also pin the blame on to the syrian government for and that was attacked in syria's province in april despite there being no. it didn't so thorough investigation but u.s. retaliated with a confrontational strike on the syrian base and what you might also remember is how the u.s. thought only blame syrian government forces for the attack but also said that russia was partly responsible by proxy so on top of everything else the u.s.
russia relations are also at stake here to. another aspect to this front in the u.k. have pledged to support an american attack on syrian government forces right goes to give looks now at why washington seems to be ready to put punishment before jus process. but sha allah side has one really bad habit and that habit is and you need does this when he's winning he ruined everything by doing something really stupid for no reason at all. take as ads are me now there crushing slavek state liberating vast swaths of syria and out of the blue comes this the united states has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the saddam regime as sad knows the probable cause and sequences of a chemical attack it's the only thing really right now that could ruin him by
giving his enemies the opportunity of a pretext to attack him why would he do it because he's evil the murderous syrian dictator bashar assad has been a brutal dictator bashar al assad's a murderous regime in syria assad is the worst kind of brutal war criminal a classic super villain booth stupid and evil beyond any logic the kind of villain batman would go after and america is not. if mr assad conducts another mass murder attack using chemical weapons he and his military will pay a heavy price britain is already on board if asked how does something really dumb a new reason again the u.k. will join the us in punishing him we think it's absolutely right if we can to
prevent the use of chemical weapons and we will fully support any u.s. action if you've been following events in syria recently you knew they aren't hitting the united states has attacked assad five times what they see. is self-defense problem is justifying the per long conflict isn't easy once the voters don't want another gung ho bombing campaign they learned their lesson after the first few times the international community sick of reckless interventions and you only thing left is to wait for asaad to give them a coup. and since he's a comic book supervillain well it's just the parts of the script. a c.n.n. document purportedly detailing the story of russia's meddling in u.s. politics prime time t.v.
in american showcasing all the kremlin's old tricks but the drama may have left some of us frustrated lacks any substantial evidence. is there any reason to believe that russia is not right now today continuing to attempt to or to infiltrate u.s. political organizations individual. skillet i think it's in their d.n.a. . or in the soviet era or know. some of his of. his prime target is the u.s. spy story in cyberspace that would lead to door step. what kind of evidence some of it surprisingly simple such as time stamps showing to the hackers were starting and finishing their work days on moscow time. well the
documentary comes out a difficult time for c.n.n. on monday three of its employees resigned after a related story was for attracted for not meeting editorial standards. investigative journalism group has released an undercover video recording casting doubt on the network's reporting on the agenda. and with more. well a video has surfaced of a c.n.n. producer saying that most of their russia trump coverage is well in more polite terms nonsense the point c.n.n. constantly in. russia the structure of. this regime's this rating razor it alright but honestly. it's just like. it's mostly right now we don't know. john. proof and it's not just one guy from c.n.n. who's saying that there's not much to this story of trump russia collusion there is
no evidence that there was collusion but they couldn't find any evidence of collusion no evidence of collusion or there is no evidence of collusion between the russians and the trump campaign but at this point what's not proven is the idea of collusion that's correct still no evidence but the media keeps pushing the story project veritas that leaked the recent video says that c.n.n. has mentioned trump in russia roughly sixteen thousand times you would think people might get bored with the subject by now are you tired of hearing about trump and russia oh yes actually yes that's all i hear about it it's just getting tiring we're all exhausted however however it has to be it has to do the truth has to come out and the truth is that that there was interference in the american electorate system but by the sentiment you feel like this is what the american people want to see on t.v. they want to hear about trump allegedly working with russia. not me not a my friend i think they would but that something. is if there is something secret
about something people want to know even more so if you just bring it out in the open if there is something you'll come out if it's not then it's just go away and you feel like the media should be reporting on this more or less and less i'd like to hear where these sources are coming from or who's saying it spares i know it could be my next door neighbor they don't have proof they need to drop it now the c.n.n. producer allegedly said that they keep pushing the story because of the ratings however a lot of the americans we spoke to said they'd rather watch something else cable mopp and r.t. washington d.c. . just back to the c.n.n. video released by project veritas the network has issued a statement saying it stands by its producer on welcomes a diversity of opinion a white house spokesperson was asked by that other news conference and said it could further undermine trust in the media i think if it is accurate i think it's
a disgrace to all of media to all of journalism i think that we have gone to a place where. if the media can't be trusted to report the news then that's a dangerous place for america project a very it's work proven highly controversial it's been accused of violating wiretapping laws and is facing a million dollar lawsuits after releasing hidden camera conversations with democratic party workers the thing for her fraud the group dismisses the lawsuit intimidation. meanwhile the u.s. congress has focused on russian media i feel it sick using them of serving as the kremlin's my base pair of lawmakers are going specifically for our tea with ability to brum the channel as a foreign agent on the sorties down the aisle or can means this is what it's about . essentially this really boils down to more tit for tat measures but just to give
you some background the united states has of course had a foreign agent registration act since the 1930's it's been amended several times since then but it requires all entities on u.s. soil with links to foreign states to register as such some powells have been drawn with the russian foreign agents act passed in two thousand and twelve although differences of course do exist now this latest bill targets are specifically russian propaganda media outlets like r t contributed to the influence campaign by serving as a platform for criminal messaging i think it's a propaganda arm over government that is definitely not on our side the bill will provide the us department of justice with increased investigative authorities to identify and prosecute entities that seek to unlawfully influence the political process the difference is there will not be a need for any criminal or administrative offenses to have taken place he would
need to report their activities to the department of justice regardless now a group of russian senators have come up with a proposal to mirror this potential new law take a listen. but even we have established that some pretty commission deals with questions of russian sovereignty and foreign meddling and hearing we discussed the bill blass proposed in the us and decided that we need to adopt a council measures now entities similar to what may happen in the united states will be forced to disclose their sources of funding and provide accountability of their activities in line with the russian foreign agents law a sport corruption report that names a u.k. prince and a former pm all the details on that in ninety seconds. seems
look. for the. quarter of an hour into the program welcome back england's failed bid for the twenty eight hundred fifty four world cup has turned into a corruption scandal for prince william and former u.k. prime minister david cameron a fee for report claims they were present in a room where a legal vote swapping was the scots i was to see it brings us the details. well definitely big names mentioned and lots of curious little dramatic details about courtship attempts of football executives and the bidding parties involved for starters yes there is mention of prince william apparently having been present at a one of the meetings where allegedly david cameron had suggested to south korean officials that they could vote for each other apparently according to this river
report these promises were made but never kept and a south korean official according to the garcia report had denied that this happened but according to garcia who was investigating these issues for two years of the if this would have been violation of anti collusion rules so certainly some questions there but among some of the other more really curious requests of that have been put in front of the english bidding team are quite interesting to say the least for starters there was talk of potentially meeting with the queen in return for support there was. english officials hour for helping with obtaining honorary knighthood help with a job for a friend's son as well as one official from a caribbean nation requesting that his hometown be twinned with an english village so certainly lots of interesting suggestions apparently going out around with all
this drama and greed of getting the grip on the world cups of twenty thousand and twenty twenty two but of course as we know in the end it was russian qatar that ended up getting those world cups and for them it's good news because they continue to can continue preparing and peace now despite previous rumors and sort of discussions in the media that they're going to be somehow implicated in this report that has not happened with any kind of fears of that happening being raced with the details that were presented in this four hundred page report. let's get further into this story because i'm not joined live in the studio by nicholai koff secretary general of the russian players on coaches association very welcome to t. so there's been a number of accusations listed in that report suggesting ethical codes have been broken how do you think fifo will respond to this from what you've seen have any laws effectively been broken well first of all we have to distinguish we have to
realize that in the law in the past years the fifa very often neglected fifa officials very often neglected ethical rules and then the justices have been selective we have to acknowledge is because we see very often that there was so many cases and when the officials in different countries in different confederations violated the fifth very basic rules about conflict of interest about the broad corruptions and something for you to note too that when the qatar and russia were selected as the host countries for the world cup the fifa council that to go decision had twenty two members so today out of the twenty two members five bent four inducted so it's a bad figure for fifa generally and we see that more and more names more and more stories are coming out in the last few years so now we have a legit you know corruption in england you know and i'm pretty sure that it's not the end of the story and for fever what is important and what is
a bit confusing when we see that the reserve body that is in charge of the investigations and then in the past few months i think they were removed from their positions by the same fifa council so for us you know it's a it's a professional people in the in this through the result right a conflict of interest because if you nominate an independent body to investigate what is going in your own organization you should not have the right to remove the right to that's the confusion there come the english football association just from reading through parts of that report could they take action against the full. or prime minister and a prince in the country on what sporting grinds could be possible if federation has its own code the rules code of ethics it's basically coping the code of ethics of fifa and in case of the violation every federation has to act and the very often we've seen that it's not about england to russia about any other federations we've seen that in the very old cases that became corrupt public the national football
federation did nothing never intervened i don't want again to go into the details whether it was anything whether or not again more information will come in the next days for you to discuss it in terms of russia in the report the risk of bribery allegations is there no no legal basis to strip the country of hosting the world cup next year it's a mistake you know and yeah it's listen first of all we have to realize when the people are saying oh everything is clean it's not correct you know it's a clean in the report right but the report was an internal investigation and. it's not an external investigation had never access to the accounts you know we have to acknowledge and we have to be careful when we are saying or the this is a good news because we know that the prosecutors in switzerland i keep doing investigations and keep doing investigations as i mentioned in the beginning of our conversation many people already indicated many councils members so it means that
although in this specific report there were no exact proves that there were any wrongdoings but we have to be careful and we have to wait until the results of the state by state bodies but still the situation as it stands before the report was released what people may have been expecting because of the avalanche of headlines for the past number of years about russia's bad was going to be negative towards russia what we've seen is more negative towards and then not surprising to many people it's true in the same time we should i would distinguish you know everybody wants to world cup to take place you know first of all. the russian taxpayers they want to rush in with the world cup will take place because of course that already a lot of money there is a confusion when the people you know there is a lot of political fight when the people are saying the government officials are in the wrong doing or suspected in the to do something wrong or the organizing committee and watch one country of another country we have to make it very clear you know if something was wrong then the independent investigation should really go on and the people should not be removed from investigation committee this is very
important to your part pointing out the clear distinction there ok that was. general of the russian players and coaches association thank you very much for giving us your take on this hour thank you. even on the wiki leaks continues to reveal more of the alleged tools used by the cia with the latest document showing how the u.s. intelligence agency collects data from p.c. users for more details on this let's go to our tease colum lynch hi there colum what has been revealed about this particular model where what is the story here. ok what they released today is known as el says latest in a series of leaks from weeklies they allege came from in cia known as false seven no else according to doctors at least they it allows the cia to track the geo location of device and not by its g.p.s. but instead by its proximity to white fly access points now this all came out today
and you know where is the we could be some detail of this in the dockets it shows that it's a device running a microsoft windows device even the device doesn't have even if it's not connected to the time once it's connected once it has wifely enabled they can get along the chewed latitude and timestamp of where it is based on why for access points would inspire somebody and then using publicly accessible databases like google and microsoft can then stores information great times on forward to what we can lease or describe as a target device is a pattern of life. i take it on as artie's column unclench a putting it together first what is a confusing story at the i set on not see a model where investigation ok thank you for that column. attention turns to the knockout stages of the fifa confederations cup in russia this whedon's there and harvey stan collymore are in our special stew doing for the build up.
